The BP gas station at the northeast corner of Wards Corner has been on the market for quite some time. Recently it was rumored that there was a contract to purchase the property. Various leaks are now confirming that the purchaser plans to build a retail building on the property and the expected tenant is a mattress store.
The likely tenant type was mentioned at the Wards Corner Civic League meeting on Monday night and most comments were negative as there is already a mattress store at Wards Corner.
The property is currently zoned C-3 and will likely not need to be rezoned for the new use.
